Good day!

Is Productivity Enhancement Incentive (PEI) as stipulated in DBM Budget Circular No. 2016-8 (which is to be given not before December 15, 2016 to qualified government employees) the same as Christmas bonus/Cash Incentive for Outstanding Performance of a particular government agency?

Your prompt reply to this inquiry will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much.

Dear Ms. Sarito, 

With regard to your inquiry, agencies which achieve their CY 2015 performance targets and satisfy 100% of the Good Governance Conditions may   grant Performance Based Bonus (PBB) to its personnel as provided under the Inter-Agency Task Force on the Harmonization of National Government Performance Monitoring, Information and Reporting Systems Memorandum Circular No. 2015-1. There is no legal basis for the grant of additional bonus/cash incentive in recognition of the outstanding performance of a particular agency.

Thank you.
